Before & After (take 2): The den

I know I shared a wide shot of the couch and ottoman with you the other day, but I wanted to come back and give you some more details about the den today.

We've come a long way from the days of brown walls and lots of brown furniture!

The mauve carpet is still there (unfortunately), but I've got a large Moroccan Trellis rug laid over it that takes a little of the sting out.

You might remember when I painted the brass fireplace surround and then the red brick a little later ... I think those were worthwhile projects.

When we replaced Big Brown, we ended up going with the Laurel sectional from LaZboy (this isn't sponsored ... just sharing the info with you).

I went back and took some more pictures on a different day to show you that one of the pillows in particular is already starting to lose some of its shape ... I may call the store and see if they have an option for adding stuffing. We've only had it for two weeks.

We also invested in the Laurel ottoman. (Sorry that these pictures have a browner tint to them than the truer grey color. Different time of day, I guess.)

I'm really happy with the prints I chose for the pillows and ottoman ... I think they give the room more personality than solids or more conventional prints would.


Just behind the couch, I purchased the Everett Foyer Table from World Market to use as a sofa table. I love it, but I hope to add a basket or two to the bottom shelf.

It's not a really expensive table to begin with, but I will say that I used a Friends & Family coupon code that I read about on a design blogger's blog, AND World Market was running a free-shipping special on purchases over $50. So I saved a good bit on it.

The other newish piece in the room is the Parsons Desk from West Elm that sits just to the left of the entertainment console and TV. I'm a huge fan of this simple, streamlined desk.

I can't think of any other source information to give you, or any other questions to answer, but please let me know if you have any!
